Buck Martinez and the Infinite Loop…

I’d wanted to do something funny involving Buck Martinez because I figured some of my friends who are Blue Jays fans might get a kick out of it -and/or- I’m upset the Brewers lost today, so I’m getting revenge…or, both (and, I wish them a Happy Canada Day, regardless), so I drew made this picture […]

Breaking Down Wily Peralta’s 5-0 June

Based on the start of this season, the baseball gods appear to have mixed feelings toward Wily Peralta. The Dominican right-hander caught some bad breaks in the first two months of the year, receiving just four wins despite a sparkling 2.73 ERA. Yet in June, although Peralta’s ERA ballooned by a run and a half, […]

Is “God Bless America” in the 7th Inning Permanent?

With the Washington Nationals in town, my thoughts turn to our nation’s capital and its most famous exports – burdensome attempts at social engineering, paternalistic rules that are unequally enforced, excessive regulations that benefit powerful interests, shortsighted laws with destructive unintended consequences, and never-ending reminders that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.  […]

How Do Brewers Stack up Against NL Division Leaders?

“If the season ended today” certainly ranks among the least useful expressions in sports. With many months of plot twists remaining in baseball’s marathon season, a glance at the standings in June offers little meaningful information. Yet with Milwaukee playing Washington in a high-profile meeting of division leaders, fans cannot help but drool over a […]

Revisiting the Aoki-Smith Swap with Josh Duggan

After nearly three months of the 2014 season, the December 2013 Nori Aoki-Will Smith trade between the Milwaukee Brewers and Kansas City Royals looks like a brilliant move for Brewers GM Doug Melvin.  Smith has been a crucial part of the Brewers bullpen, but the lineup has shown a lingering vacancy in terms of a […]

Postgame Press Conference Features RR and the Tabasco Overloardz!

Noticed this the whole time Roenicke was talking, pretty much. It just seems to fit. The anger—it was real. No doubt, it was real. Our hometown and/or favorite team’s right fielder took a seemingly innocent* hit on the rear, but, think if that were just up a bit higher, and it would have been the […]

Measuring the Brewers’ Outfield Unit

Baseball is less of a unit-based sport than, say, football. For example, a defensive lineman’s ability to pressure the quarterback has a clear and straightforward effect on how the rest of the defense performs. In contrast, in baseball what one outfielder does has a relatively small impact on what the other outfielders do. Yet it […]

Brewers Wall of Honor is Just Spiffy

Yesterday the Brewers unveiled the new Wall of Honor display on the north side of Miller Park outside left field.  The brainchild of former Brewer player and current Brewer official Craig Counsell, the Wall is meant to commemorate players (plus Uecker and Selig) who left their mark on the franchise.  Individuals earn a spot on […]
